National Anthem of Egypt

"Bilady, Bilady, Bilady" or 'My Homeland, My Homeland, My Homeland', in English is the National Anthem of Egypt adopted on 1979. The lyric was written by Mohamed Younis-al Qadi and the music was composed by Sayed Darwish, a pioneer of Arabic music and a leader of the modern Egyptian renaissance at the turn of the 20th century. He also maintained close ties with early leaders of the national movement for independence in the Middle East, such as Mustapha Kamel and the words of Egypt's national anthem were derived from one of Kamel's most famous speeches.


Biladi biladi biladi
Lakihubbi wa fuadi
Biladi biladi biladi
Lakihubbi wa fuadi

Misr ya umm al bilad
Inti ghayati wal murad
Wa alla ku il ibad
Kam lineelik min ayadi


Misr intiaghla durra
Fawq gabeen addahr ghurra
Ya biladi aishihurra
Wa asadi raghm al adi.


Misr awladik kiram
Aufiya yaruzimam
Saufa takhti bilmaram
Bittihadhim waittihadi.


English Translation:

My homeland, my homeland, my homeland,
My love and my heart are for thee.

My homeland, my homeland, my homeland,
My love and my heart are for thee.

Egypt! O mother of all lands,
My hope and my ambition,
How can one count
The blessings of the Nile for mankind?


Egypt! Most precious jewel,
Shining on the brow of eternity!
O my homeland, be forever free,
Safe from every foe!


Egypt! Noble are thy children,
Loyal, and guardians of thy soil.
In war and peace
We give our lives for thy sake.



Egypt's first national anthem dates back to 1869. A royal anthem was composed to honor and shoe respect to the then monarch. It's said that it was Verdi who composed the music of the anthem.

The first written anthem is said to be "Walla Zaman Ya Selahy", written for Umm Kalthoum. She was considered by many as the number one female singer of the period. The song gained an immense popularity in 1956 and was finally adopted as the national anthem in 1960. This song remained Egypt's national anthem till it was replaced by the current national anthem in 1979. The anthem was also used, without lyrics, between 1965 to 1981 by the Iraqis, which was seeking a greater Arab state that would link the two nations with other Arab states.

Although the song has three stanzas, only the first is commonly sung today.
